something of a renaissance. scholars in europe, africa and the americas and caribbean have made the slave trade and slavery the objective of new historical, economic, political and cultural studies. gradually they have gone to assess the far reaching impact of slavery on the slave trade on their respective societies, nations and continents as well as the global political economy. what i propose to do in this brief presentation is suggest some of the ways the intended and unintended consequences of the slave trade as well as the slavery experience in the americas shaped the modern world as we knew it and laid the foundations for the development of the african-american community in this country. there is no general agreement in the academic circles and -- or among the public at large about what constitutes the modern world and when it began. some traces orginals back to the 13th century. others to the late 19th century whether european colonial powers consolidated the economic and political hold over people's of african dissent and those in asia. for my purposes, within the context of this

revolution that occurred between these two great cities that helped build america. there is a lot of pride in people here. a lot of people who stand on the shoulders of ancestors who created and gave so much. the sweat of their brow, their intellect, to build great companies and work in those companies. i always talk about america is that country that is different than any other country in the world because we were built from the bottom up. we were not ruled by a big powerful central government are a king or emperor. that is not how america was built. we were built with a government that was supposed to be lamented that believe in free people. they believed in the integrity and value of the family and church in the local school and the community organizations that were there to take care of each other. we got in trouble we did not call it 1800 number from washington to help us. we asked our neighbor who went to the church, the school, the employer. we were all in this together. i was talking about the declaration of independence and those words "we hold these truths to be self-evident, all

that the america we love it was in trouble in a direct without strong leadership. three years of barack obama have brought us the word jobs and shrinking paychecks. many of us believe we were in danger of losing something even more than the value of our homes and our 401ks. after years of too many apologies and not enough jobs, the store drops in income and highs in gas prices, a president who does not hesitate to use all of the means necessary to force the obamacare on the american public, but leaves from behind in the world. it is time to say these words -- this word -- enough.

in 1754 in north america and through that beginning of the war in north america france and britain came to be at war with each other. and formally in europe france and britain went to war against each other in 1756. by that time, as we'll see, their colonies in north america and their forces in north america were already joined in conflict so to understand the french and indian war as it's traditionally called in american u.s. history and also the seven years war, one has to put it in a very broad perspective of north american history and even european history of course and looking beyond europe to the competition between empires, especially france and britain in various corners of the globe. the war would be fought in north america where it began. it was joined in europe on a large scale and involved nations such as russia, austria, prussia as well as france and britain. and of course it was fought in the caribbean as well, which was a major theater of conflict during the war. toward the end of the war spain would join on the side of france complicating the matter still. well, today ou

announcements. the first is we are forming a strategic partnership. code for america is a nonprofit that has been presenting innovative ideas to city governments, and particularly, for san francisco. i want to expose them to everything we have in terms of direct customer services, challenges we have had for many years, and to ask them to work with the strategically to create, in a competitive nature and a strategic partnership, a relationship where we can have companies and individuals and the entrepreneurs come through code of america and get the kind of information for the challenges we are having in government, and to work with us to create the most innovative ideas possible. some of you may ask, what are we really talking about? for example, last january -- the best example i can give you is, i was intrigued by this application we have created in the mta, where we had a sf park. an innovative idea of creating parking applications to solve some of our congestion on the street. i brought that application to the conference of mayors in washington, d.c. and was immediately surrounded by no l

years of the freniend and indian war. the conflict in north america pitted the french and their indian allies against the british and their american colonial subjects. this is an hour and 20 minutes. >> welcome to our class of colonial history at the university of texas at arlington. arlington. today our subject is the seven years war or the french and indian war. and as the two names tell us, this war has at least a dual meaning, really multi-faceted meaning because it was a conflict fought in various areas of the globe. it was a conflict that began in 1754 in north america and through that beginning of the war in north america france and britain came to be at war with each other. and formally in europe france and britain went to war against each other in 1756. by that time, as we'll see, their colonies in north america and their forces in north america were already joined in conflict so to understand the french and indian war as it's traditionally called in american u.s. history and also the seven years war, one has to put it in a very broad perspective of north american history and
"life" each week. loos used his influence to try to shape a better america. for example it was in "life" he first used the phrase, the american century. in 1940, to highlight this nations emerging global responsibilities and his own task, nation building. as he told his editors a few years later, i have the faithful belief that the america that we work for will win in this time and age if we do our part. in a sense, everything does depend on you. if we persevere our life timeless see not the peace, but certainly the truce of god. one by american fortitude, energy, generosity and ideals. as loos surveyed the world of postworld war ii america, he placed his greatest hope on the evidentiary renewal of american family life. his vision of a family centered in faith-centered nation received dramatic visual confirmation and in 1947 a promotional campaign for "life" called "the new america." "life" photographers using special pan graphic cameras welded 14,000 new photos into 27 sequences using five synchronized projectors, a new fade in and fade out technique and a 40-foot high screen and featu

is at -- under my administration, oil production in america is at an all-time high. you and i both know that with only 2% of the world oil reserve, we cannot just drill our way to lower gas prices. not when we consume 20% of the world oil. we need an all-the-of of strategy. -- all-the-above strategy. that is the strategy we are pursuing. that is why i went to a plant in north carolina earlier this week for their making trucks that run on natural gas and hybrid trucks that go further on a single tank. and it is why i have been focused on fuel-efficient cars since i took office. for the last few years, the number of miles driven by americans has stayed roughly the same period the total amount of gas we use has been going down. in other words, we are getting more bang for our buck. we can help drivers say significant amount of money. that is why, after 30 years of inaction, we finally put in place new standards that will make sure our cars averaged nearly 55 miles per gallon by the middle of the next decade. nearly double today. we had to bring together auto companies, unions, and fol
in the united states of america, right here in iowa. you lost 53,000 manufacturing jobs. you saw companies like maytag and electrolux and many others thousands of factories closed down and laid off workers and relocated to places like vietnam, me"cheaper markets." how many times have you been told over the last 15 years that america's days as the leading manufacturer in the world have passed? log, the president and i said, it written that says our day has passed in anything? the pren fundamentally disagreed with that proposition, and by the way, it was a widely held proposition. not just with our friends on the other side, but a whole lot of t manufacturing back on its feet again, for every one of those manufacturing jobs lost, somebody lost their place in the middle class.f those jobs lost. so we went to work, first and foremost over significant opposition, and with mitt romney arguing that we should let detroit go bankrupt. what we did is we rescued the auto industry, we aministered some of the very toughest medicine [ cheers and applause ] >> we're criticized by many on our side. we administ

government bonds. gasoline production in america is the highest it has been since 1993. demand is the lowest it has been since 1997. some americans to have jobs that they do not need a lot of gas to the work. the reason gas is so expensive is because we are printing some much money. if we keep printing more money, the price of gas will go up. it yielded gas in terms of real money, back in 1950's could buy a gallon of gasoline for $0.25. the the same quarter because it is made of silver. when you have real money, prices go down. when you have funny money, prices go up. that will further undermine our economy. >> really quickly. >> low-cost energy is a big boom towards the revitalization of parts of our manufacturing sector. that is happening. a coherent federal policy. the advantage of low-cost energy does not necessarily apply when we are able to produce more of our own energy because more of the income stays in the economy. i think the goal would be more of an optimal energy policy that allows us to produce the optimal price of energy. the revitalization of manufacturing. if we were able to

of themselves. iran wants to dominate and s obliterate. it's a problem for america and the world. we may not know when iran will secure sufficient fissile material to threaten the entire world, but the iaea says it is fast approaching. iran wants to close the strait of hormuz. in their nuclear laboratories they prepare the means to hold hostage the entire planet. iran has long engaged in terrorism around the world most recently, of course, in georgia and thailand and in washington, d.c., they plotted to assassinate the saudi ambassador by bombing a georgetown restaurant. iran has deployed hezbollah and hamas and armed the jurnts of iraq and afghanistan, killing our sons and daughters. they war war against america, yet the current administration has promoted a policy of engagement with iran. the president offered to sit down with ahmadinejad in first year of office. he was silent as iranian dissidents took to the streets of iran, not wanting to disrupt the potential for dialogue with iran's tyrant. the president has opposed sanctions. hope is not a foreign policy. the only thing respected
the iranian regime to take america, well, what they've done in taking america over the past several years, which is not seriously -- not serious about stopping them from their quest for a nuclear weapon. the fact that we had the chairman of the joint chiefs suggesting that we're not sure yet that iran is really going to pursue or has made the decision to develop a nuclear weapon. just shows, again, the disconnect that they know we have, that the insincerity of our leaders in telling the truth to the american public about what is actually going in iran today, how radical this regime is. the hyperrhetoric about not just the state of israel but targeting jews in specific. let's be honest with the american public about who these radical islamists are who are running the government of iran and what their intention is. their intention is not just to control the middle east. their intention is not just to protect themselves from being attacked. these are radical theocrats that don't just want to destroy the state of israel, they are radical theocrates who believe it's their destiny to not just c
are the open water basins, and we have heard a lot about that in the context of the america's cup plan amendments. the green areas, the grand street wharf at the southern end, and the northeast wharf, which we're trying to develop as part of the cruise terminal project here, that are required under the plan. the northernmost that fisherman's wharf is a planning study goal, because that was always an objective, but we were never able to get all of the pieces put into place to create a formal policy. so it was always recognized as something that we needed to come back to. the proposed special area plan policy, as detailed in the staff report, -- actually -- i skip a sly, but what i wanted to focus on west pier 27 and 29, because that is the genesis -- oh, here we are. doing strange things for me. for pier 27 and 29, the cruise terminal in the northeast wharf proposal, this map is from the existing special area plan shows the footprint of the northeast wharf, as it is called out in the plane b. within a gray area, that was identified as a place where, with that plaza and then with the pro

and the cost of doing business in america. just one example is our cost of energy. the price of gasoline is rising rapidly because we continue to depend on foreign oil. it is now within our reach to become energy independent in north america if we simply develop the resources we already have available. in places like the gulf of mexico. non-sensitive public lands across america, and in our friendly bordering countries. the second reason we are on the wrong track is the federal government is killing energy development with overly burdenen some regulations. the best example of this is the keystone pipeline, which the obama administration will not allow to be built. the stayed of north dakota is currently experiencing an oil boom. we have doubled our oil production in the last four years and are about to become the second largest oil-producing state behind only texas. but we cannot effectively market our crude oil domestically without a large north-south pipeline. north dakota oil producers were scheduled to feed the keystone pipeline with 100,000 barrels of crude oil per day. now we will n
that the america we loved was in trouble and adrift without strong leadership. and three years of barack obama have brought us fewer jobs, and shrinking paychecks. many of us feel we're in danger of losing something more than the value of our homes and 401(k)s. after years of too many apologies and not enough jobs, historic drops in income and historic highs in gas prices, a president who doesn't hesitate to use all the means necessary to force through obama care on the american public but leads from behind on the world. it's time to say these words. this word. enough. we've had enough. we know our future. we know our future is brighter than these troubled times. we still believe in america. and we deserve a president who believes in us. and i believe in the american people. now, you know that yesterday i was giving a speech at the university of chicago. not far from here. not far from where president barack obama taught. it was a speech of economic freedom. and as i was writing the speech, i thought to my lifetime of experiences. i've had a lot of opportunity to learn about the unique genius of am
